Equity and Quality of Life Project

City of Urbana Equity and Quality of Life Project

The Equity and Quality of Life (EQL) Project is a capital program initiated by the City of Urbana to address small-scale public infrastructure needs, with an emphasis on underserved neighborhoods. The goal is to improve safety and promote health for Urbana residents in tangible ways through a series of small projects. 

What would make a big impact in your neighborhood?


Tell us. We are listening.

The purpose of the submission process is for community members, as well as City staff, to propose projects for consideration that will be ranked using the rating system that is included in this attachment. No monetary awards will be made to community members. Rather, the City of Urbana will be implementing these projects using either in-house resources or contracted services. The City is interested in hearing from residents what their priorities are for small changes that can have a large impact on their community. The maximum target size for an individual project will be $250,000, but the City reserves the right to exceed that maximum for a given project if circumstances warrant.

Think about: 

  • Travel Safety
  • Personal Safety
